1520s, “to be in agreement, to be in harmony with,” from Middle French correspondre (14c.) or directly from Medieval Latin correspondere, from cor- (see com-) “together, with each other” + respondere “to answer” (see respond).

In English, sense of “to be similar” (to) is from 1640s; that of “to hold communication with” is from c.1600; specifically “to communicate by means of letters” from 1640s (in mid-18c. it also could mean “have sex”).
